LIBRARY NOTES – November 2010

By Barbara Mellon

The staff and Board of Directors of the Andes Public Library would like to thank all those who made our recent Silent Auction a huge success. An overwhelming number of local artists, businesses and friends generously donated a wide range of items and services, from gift certificates for restaurants, shops and massages to many pieces of original artwork. More than 75 people attended the auction to bid on their favorites while enjoying the tasty treats supplied by dedicated volunteers. How wonderful to see so many people gathered for such a good cause!

On Monday, November 1st, Andes native Donna Martino will host a Life Coaching workshop at the library. Although geared primarily towards women, all are invited to “spend an evening with others to discover the value and satisfaction that comes with having a Coach guide you.”

A Community Pot-Luck Dinner will be held on Tuesday, November 9th at the Library beginning at 6 pm. Sponsored by the Library and the fledgling Catskill Learning Cooperative, coordinator Laurie McIntosh says of the event “Come join other members of the community for an evening of food, music & just plain ol’ getting together for a good time.” If you’ve been to any of Laurie’s events before, you know she is as good as her word.

In December, Tulku Sherab, Executive Director of the Blazing Wisdom Institute on Fall Clove Road and renowned scholar and interpreter of Tibetan Buddhist teachings, will join us to talk about his book A Path Strewn with Flowers and Bones and other topics.  Tulku Sherab is an attorney, reincarnated lama, and human rights activist. This is sure to be an interesting evening.

We had a special group of visitors at the library earlier this fall. Mr. Coiro, an English teacher at Andes Central School, brought the entire senior class to get library cards. As they begin work on their senior projects, it is important for the students to have access to as many research resources as possible. The library has many ways to help: books, both our own and those available through the Interlibrary Loan System, Internet access and online Research databases.  ~
